This bright red bursts with flavor, with fragrant marjoram, violet and milled white pepper accenting crisp cherry and ripe boysenberry fruit. Features fine tannins that are a sleek frame for the expressive profile, with a spicy mineral streak driving the finish. Garnacha, Samsó, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2028. 15600 cases made. From Spain.- Alison Napjus
